Moving files between your smartphone and PC has always been kind of a pain in the ass.

Samsung says these fancy wireless speakers were created at a "state-of-the-art audio lab in Valencia, California." We know better.

Safari for iOS is good. Very good, even! But you might want an alternative—an extremely sexy alternative. But useful, too! Like a Hooters waitress who also teaches physics! And is a web browser.
What is it?
Portal, iPhone, $2. A fullscreen web browser with an expanding radial menu.
